Swoon Fibers


Alida Porter is the Rochester, New York, dyer at Swoon Fibers. “My mission is to pass along that love of really extraordinary fibers and the enjoyment of the way those fibers take color, how they feel, how they look when they’re knitted,” Alida says. “My passion has always been about this simple thing, and how sometimes the simplest knitted piece, skein or stitch can have such inherent beauty.”
